‘Titans’ topples ‘Games’ overseas

'Lorax' is still a player among families

In its debut weekend overseas, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ “Wrath of the Titans,” overpowered the previous week’s champ “The Hunger Games,” releasing a crackling $76.1 million from 60 markets to “Games’?” $35.3 million (good for an international cume of $115 million for the Lionsgate pic in its second frame).

“Wrath” scored chart-topping numbers in the majority of its debut territories over the March 30-April 1 sesh, though it was bested by “Hunger Games” in English-speaking markets, led by Australia ($5.1 million for “Games”; $2.1 million for “Wrath”) and the U.K. ($4.7 million for “Games”; $3.5 million for “Wrath”).

“Games” has cumed $17 million and $15.5 million in Oz and Blighty, respectively.

Top results for “Wrath,” meanwhile, came from Latin America, specifically Mexico ($5.2 million) and Brazil ($4.1 million); and Asia, led by South Korea ($4.3 million).

“Wrath” debuted as the No. 1 film in China, but because of the local Tomb Sweeping holiday to commemorate ancestors, full results weren’t available for print.

As expected, “Wrath” earned the majority of its opening tally in foreign wickets — a promising start for the $125 million-budgeted pic, which, at $33.5 million domestically, underperformed.

“Hunger Games” will have no trouble recouping, with a global tally through the weekend approaching $365 million.

In third place internationally, Universal’s “The Lorax” had a solid expansion leading up to the Easter holiday, with a weekend gross of $14.5 million from 43 territories.

Pic expanded into 17 new markets, including Mexico, where it debuted behind “Wrath,” with $2.5 million.

“Lorax” should continue to attract family audiences as it rolls out over the holiday. The film has cumed $37.7 million internationally, with 25 additional markets yet to go.
